Sunday, Dec. 4, 5pm – Dheepan (France, Tamil, English, French with English subtitles) which won the Palme d’Or at Cannes, examines what happens to the millions of migrants who flee conflict zones to find new homes in the cities of the west.It begins in Sri Lanka at the end of the civil war as a Tamil soldier, having lost his family, seeks a way out. In the refugee camp he cobbles together a fake family and is able to obtain passage on a boat for France. Securing their position in France means making their false family real, but past violence and present threats create a volatile combination that is bound to explode. A heartrending saga of three strangers united by circumstance and struggle, Dheepan is both a tour-de-force thriller and a powerful depiction of the immigrant experience.
